My Bookish Art: Wonder Woman

Friday, August 18, 2017

Just in case you are new here: I've been sharing my artwork on my blog for a couple months now.  I was a little unsure about sharing it at first because this is primarily a bookish blog, so I decided to share my book inspired artwork to sort of tie it in.  I've got plans to eventually start an Etsy/Society 6 site but I haven't made the jump yet.  I'm just nervous to take that first step, I think.  This is the 6th painting of mine that I've shared so far on my blog.  I've included the links to the others below my newest painting. Right now, I'm trying to decide what painting I want to try next.  I just need to find the time and motivation. lol

I'm actually not too sure if I'm completely done with this one or not. lol!  I feel like I want to go back and add more highlights/lowlights in her hair, and maybe some more on her face too.  I also think I want to eventually add a really epic background behind her.  But for now, this is my acrylic painting of Wonder Woman.

(some progress shots because I think they are fun to share. lol)

Quickie Review: A Fashionable Indulgence by K.J. Charles

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Title: A Fashionable Indulgence
Author: K.J. Charles
Series: Society of Gentlemen #1
Genre: Historical MM Romance
Publisher: Loveswept
Publication Date: August 11th 2015

 In the first novel of an explosive new series from K. J. Charles, a young gentleman and his elegant mentor fight for love in a world of wealth, power, and manipulation.

When he learns that he could be the heir to an unexpected fortune, Harry Vane rejects his past as a Radical fighting for government reform and sets about wooing his lovely cousin. But his heart is captured instead by the most beautiful, chic man he’s ever met: the dandy tasked with instructing him in the manners and style of the ton. Harry’s new station demands conformity—and yet the one thing he desires is a taste of the wrong pair of lips.

After witnessing firsthand the horrors of Waterloo, Julius Norreys sought refuge behind the luxurious facade of the upper crust. Now he concerns himself exclusively with the cut of his coat and the quality of his boots. And yet his protégé is so unblemished by cynicism that he inspires the first flare of genuine desire Julius has felt in years. He cannot protect Harry from the worst excesses of society. But together they can withstand the high price of passion.

Unpopular opinion time: I didn't love it.  EVERYONE I know that has read this one has loved it!  I read the third book in this series and decided to go back to read this one, but I just felt bored.  It was written very well and seemed historically accurate for the time, but I just couldn't get into this one at all.  I didn't feel as if there was a strong enough pull of the chemistry between them, and then there was SO MUCH going on with the plot that I just couldn't fully get into their relationship.  That being said, I'm probably still going to read the second book because K.J. Charles is great at leaving you wanting more with her secondary characters.  I need to know more about Dominic and Silas.  I didn't think this was a bad book by any means, I just liked the third book a lot better.
